The Lesson of the Fig Tree
c "Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.

"Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.
"Heaven and earth will pass away, but d My words will by no means pass away.
